Health Care by the Numbers

As many of you already know, Obama’s new health-care plan will allow your doctor to put down your grandmother like a rabid dog if she comes down with arthritis, bursitis, or just “a case of the Mondays.” I’m kidding, of course. It will be up to a government-appointed panel of socialist veterinary students. Your doctor will have nothing to do with it.
